Change of Canadian federal government is a great relief

Can't help but feel positive.  Things have been terrible for a long time in the country of Canada.  The past 9 years of Harper rule have seemed like a dark ages.  He tried to change the country and unfortunately he succeeded in large measure.  He suceeded in convincing an astonishingly high proportion of the citizens of this country that greed is a virtue, that taxes are evil and that we need to fear the other.  He damaged the brand.  I don't feel smugly superior to our neighbour state any more - we need to expiate our own "downhill slide into abysmal".
